They should work fine with that backspacing. I am ordering my wheels today (Boyd Coddington)...17x8 front with 5" bs (225/45-17) and 17x9.5 with 5.5" bs rear (255/45-17). After this set is worn out, and if the centering of my axle is adequate, I am moving to 235/45's in the front and 275/40's in the rear.
BTW disc brakes on the front, drums on the rear.
